ANNUAL
MEETING   AANS: SPEAKING OUT




          Chicago Favorites and More
          April 6-11, 2002 CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
WELCOME
   Dear AANS Members and Guests,
   It is a pleasure to welcome all of you to our hometown. We look forward to greeting
   old friends and meeting new ones at the AANS 70th Annual Meeting in Chicago.
   Combining sophisticated urban attractions and midwestern friendliness, it’s a great
   place to come for professional or business pursuits. Bring your family and allow your-
   selves to enjoy all that Chicago has to offer.
   Chicago is a city that is rich in history. According to explorers’ accounts from the
   1600s, the Illinois Indians were the first people to claim a land they named
   “Chicaugou.” It meant powerful or strong and was used by many tribal chiefs to signi-
   fy that they were “great” chiefs. The first explorers to set foot on the site destined to
   become Chicago were Louis Joliet and Father Jacques Marquette. The latter established
   an Indian mission here in 1674. Chicago’s first settler, Jean Baptiste Point DuSable,
   came to the area around 1780 to trade furs with the local Indians. With the develop-
   ment of the railroad and the Illinois/Michigan Canal, Chicago advanced as the leader
   in the cattle, lumber, and wheat industries. It became known as the city of opportunity
   and by the mid-1850s as many as 100,000 immigrants per year were flocking to the
   city seeking land and jobs. In 1860, Chicago hosted the Republican National
   Convention, which nominated Illinois’ own Abraham Lincoln as the presidential can-
   didate. On October 8, 1871, the Great Chicago Fire destroyed most of the central part
   of the city. The now-famous story of Mrs. O’Leary’s cow knocking over a kerosene
   lamp and starting this great fire, has inspired artists for over a century. This devastating
   fire burned for 3 days, in the process destroying more than 17,000 buildings, claiming
   250 lives and leaving 100,000 residents homeless. At the time, property damages were
   estimated at $200 million dollars, nevertheless, the “city of big shoulders” persevered
   and a greater Chicago emerged. Internationally-acclaimed architects flocked to the city
   for its reconstruction. By 1893, Chicago hosted 27.5 million visitors at the World
   Columbia Exposition. Vestiges of all this history remain today. Chicago is a culturally
   diverse city, home to world-class museums, restaurants, shopping and attractions of all
   kinds. Those who attend the AANS meeting, will find that there are not enough hours
   in the day to explore the city.
   Of all Chicago’s attractions, we are most proud of its world-renowned collection of
   museums. You will not want to miss the Museum Campus. This is a scenic park on the
   lakefront, which joins the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum, the Shedd
   Aquarium/Oceanarium and the Field Museum of Natural History. At the Field
   Museum, you will be greeted by “Sue,” the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus
   Rex skeleton in the world. The collection also includes mummies, Egyptian tombs,
   North American artifacts and meteors. Across the park, you can star gaze at the Adler
   Planetarium or direct your own space ship in the Sky Theatre. When you return to
   earth, walk across the park to the Shedd Aquarium and take in the dolphin show or
   enjoy the antics of the Beluga whales.
   On Michigan Avenue, the Art Institute of Chicago is widely considered to be one of
   the world’s leading art museums, and is especially well-known for its collection of
   French Impressionist and American art. Children will enjoy the Thorne miniature
   rooms, the Chagall stained glass windows and the medieval armor collection.
                                                 The Museum of Science and Industry,
                                                 the Chicago Historical Society, the
                                                 DuSable Museum of African American
                                                 History, the Terra Museum of American
                                                 Art and the Museum of Contemporary
                                                 Art, contain diverse collections.
                                                  The city itself is a museum of modern
                                                  architecture and is considered the
                                                  birthplace of the skyscraper. Visitors
                                                  come from around the world to admire
                                                  Chicago’s architectural marvels, includ-
                                                  ing the work of such greats as Daniel
Burnham, Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Helmut
Jahn and hundreds of others. Walking in the city streets or viewing buildings from the
numerous river and lakefront cruise boats, provides an unusually rich experience. In
addition to fabulous museums, Chicago is home to a variety of other great attractions
including Navy Pier, which is the city’s lakefront playground. Navy Pier offers visitors a
unique blend of family-oriented attractions, from the quiet setting of the Crystal
Gardens, to the beauty of the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows. The land-
mark of Navy Pier is the 150-foot-high Ferris wheel, which offers breath-taking views
of the city’s gorgeous skyline. The Navy Pier complex also includes the Chicago
Children’s Museum, a musical carousel, an IMAX theater and the Chicago Shakespeare
Theatre. Other attractions to enjoy include the Buckingham Fountain at Grant Park,
and the observation decks of the Sears Tower or John Hancock Building.
The city is also a gourmet’s delight and has restaurants to please every taste and budget,
whether you are looking for fine dining or a classic Chicago style hot dog or pizza.
Many people come here simply to shop! The classic shopping areas include State Street,
“That Great Street,” where the original Marshall Field’s department store opened in
1852, or Carson Pirie Scott, where customers are drawn into the entrance by the
ornate ironwork designed by Louis Sullivan in 1899. The “Magnificent Mile” is
Chicago’s largest shopping area, running from Oak Street to the Chicago River. Amidst
department store giants such as Marshall Field’s, Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor, Saks
Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom are literally hundreds of specialty shops
and boutiques. Oak Street in particular is known for its “haute couture” fashions
featuring such stores as Ultimo, Gianni Versace and Giorgio Armani.
Come visit Chicago! It is truly a great American city — from stunning architecture
and world famous museums, to lakefront parks, running trails and vibrant ethnic
neighborhoods. We think you will find that our kind of town is your kind of town.
Sincerely,
Gail L. Rosseau, MD
Local Host Committee Chair
